Upcoming retreats

Our retreats bring together all the key ingredients to curate an unforgettable and empowering experience for women around the world. Get ready for a week that's bound to be one of the most incredible weeks of your life! By the end of your time with us you'll return home feeling reenergized, revitalized, and with a tight-knit support network of 8 other remarkable women we like to refer to as "seasters"!
Whether you're a complete beginner who has always dreamed of surfing or have already caught a few waves and fallen in love with the feeling of riding them, our "female only" crew of certified surf coaches is here to provide you with an unforgettable week of pure stoke! Through personalized in-water coaching, insightful video analysis sessions, and engaging pool and land-based theories, we'll guide you on your surfing journey and help you improve your skills, taking your surfing to the next level. We promise an empowering and supportive experience that will leave you with lasting memories and a deeper connection to the ocean.
During your stay with us, you'll have the opportunity to join us on the mat for breathwork practices that can help release trauma and anxiety, providing you with a potentially life-changing experience. In addition, we'll also incorporate invigorating yoga sessions designed to nourish your prana, enhance your balance, build strength, alleviate muscle fatigue, and cultivate a deeper sense of body awareness. You don't need to be a seasoned yogi to participate; all levels are welcome, and we'll adapt to your needs and abilities. Together we will connect with our breath, flow with intention, and tune in to our bodies for a truly transformative experience!
Empowerment will be embodied in our daily activities during the retreat. From celebrating our achievements together such as riding waves to holding each other up in moments of vulnerability. We strive to inspire and encourage all girls to step into their power, connect with their inner selves, and unleash their limitless potential. We believe that empowerment comes from collaboration, not competition. By supporting and uplifting one another, we become a stronger force. Let's embody empowerment in everything we do, empowering girls to pursue their passions unapologetically and thrive in their own unique ways.
At our retreat, we are proud to be self-proclaimed foodies, and we can't wait to share our culinary passion with you! This is not just your typical surf and yoga retreat; it's also a gastronomic extravaganza! Our talented chef, Casper, has carefully curated a menu that is not only healthy, nourishing, and delicious but also caters to any dietary restrictions. Using fresh, locally sourced, and organic Costa Rican ingredients, he will delight your taste buds with his creations every single day. As the week progresses, the culinary experience only gets better and better, leading up to our unforgettable last night!
Even amidst a week of pure bliss in paradise, filled with daily surfing, yoga, soul-nourishing food, and endless fun, it's crucial to make time for pausing, breathing, being present, and practicing self-love. Our retreats emphasize the importance of practicing gratitude and giving ourselves the care and attention we deserve! Habits that can be carried back home and incorporated into your daily routine, contributing to a happier and more fulfilling life! Wait till you try our Spa day done the Nosara way!
As adults navigating the complexities of modern life, it can be difficult to meet new people and form authentic friendships. That's why our retreats provide the perfect container for this experience. With a maximum group size of 8, we intentionally create an intimate setting where we can truly become a group, a tribe! We prioritize fostering a sense of togetherness and camaraderie over numbers and we assure you that after a week of catching waves together, sharing food around a table and hanging out, not only will you create cherished memories, but you will also leave with friendships that will last a lifetime!
Community is at the heart of our values. We believe in not just creating a community, but also actively supporting and giving back to it. That's why we are dedicated to working with the local people of our beautiful home, Nosara. As one of the surf towns in Costa Rica, Nosara boasts a close-knit and supportive community that we are proud to be a part of. We strive to contribute positively to this community, recognizing the importance of giving back and fostering connections with the people who make our town special!
Our retreat is a harmonious blend of nature and adventure, where we work hand in hand with the pristine beauty of the Costa Rican jungle and the invigorating ocean. Immerse yourself in the wild and lush surroundings, disconnect from your daily routine, and rediscover yourself in the best place in the world to nurture your mind, body, and soul.
